(Health-NewsWire.Net, January 16, 2015 ) Titusville, FL -- Hip pain could have several different causes. It could be because of arthritis, tendinitis, bursitis or other medical conditions. Nevertheless, based on reports overpronation or hypersupination could also be the cause of a person's hip pain that does not seem to go away. Hydrofeet® shoe inserts could be the simplest way of treating hip pain.
The feet are connected to knees, to the legs, then to the hips and back. When a person's feet is structurally or functionally unbalanced, the knees, legs, hips and back would carry the burden. Structural imbalance is when there is a problem with one's bone structure. On the other hand, functional imbalance is when there is a problem with one's muscle structure.
The hips carry the biggest part of the body - the torso - and the rest of the upper body including the head and upper limbs. Thus, it should not be strange that people experience hip pain sometimes. However, when the hip pain becomes nagging, the feet, which is the foundation or base of body, should be checked to make sure that it is not the root cause of the problem.
Overpronation is what people call "flat feet." Normally, the arch should be slightly elevated relative to the rest of the surface of the feet. If a person has flat feet, this means there is little or no arch to straighten the body of the person. According to chiropractor Dr. Donald Ozello, "Postural imbalances such as knock knees, forward titled [sic] pelvis, hip height discrepancy and shoulder height unevenness can result from overpronation."
On the other hand, hypersupination is when a person has too high arch under the feet. This also creates an imbalance, putting pressure on the knees and hips. Instead of rolling inward, the feet roll outward. According to the University of Rochester Medical Center, "Hypersupination causes stress to muscles on the outside of the leg."
Experts agree that to manage overpronation or hypersupination in order to cure hip pains, a patient should wear custom-fit orthotics. These shoe inserts may be made of rubber, gel, or foam, which are reportedly short-lived, rigid, and usually painful.
Hydrofeet®, on the other hand, is dynamic and long lasting. It is made of FDA-approved liquid glycerin that adjusts as the patient moves. The glycerin moves back and forth, providing cushion and reflexology therapy-like massages to the user. The liquid glycerin is enclosed in a thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) that is antimicrobial, medical-grade, and durable.
Hydrofeet® massaging insoles address flat feet by lifting the arches of the feet, thereby alleviating heel shock and stress in the knees, hips, and back. It helps a person manage hypersupination by lifting the outer part of the feet, and pulling the arches down. This shoe inserts also absorbs the pressure brought about by long hours of walking, standing, and running.
By managing overpronation and hypersupination properly, the patient could be relieved off hip pains.
